WATCH ON-DEMAND: Get an insider, data-driven dive, backed by the Uptycs threat intelligence team, into how attackers pick their targets and why.

Worried about where the next attack is coming from? We’ve got your back.

One of the most important steps to preventing a cybersecurity breach is understanding your adversary; the techniques they’re using, the malware they’re armed with, what they’re targeting, and the vulnerabilities that put you most at risk.

Watch Threatpost’s discussion with the Uptycs threat intelligence team for an insider, data-driven dive into how attackers pick their targets and why.

CISOs, CTOs and threat hunters will learn from Uptyc’s Threat Research Team precisely where attackers are targeting your systems. Most importantly, attendees will walk away with the tips and tactics to get there first.

The latest Uptycs threat research will help you get a leg up on the bad guys. Amit Malik and Ashwin Vamshi from Uptycs join Threatpost host Becky Bracken to walk through their latest research, explain what it means to organizations and answer specific questions from the audience.

During the conversation we’ll cover:

  • Commonly abused commands and utilities in Linux, macOS and Windows
  • Malware families seen most prevalently seen across platforms
  • Active threat actors and recent targeted malware attacks
  • Important vulnerabilities to prioritize across platforms
  • And what steps you can take to detect these actions and improve your security
